Sanford’s fatal sin: Crossing Donald Trump
Politico, by Alex Isenstadt

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/13/2018 4:39:36 AM

In the end, it wasn’t the Appalachian Trail that brought down Mark Sanford. It was President Donald Trump. The South Carolina congressman’s stunning defeat in Tuesday’s Republican primary effectively ended the turbulent two-decade career of a political icon who once harbored presidential aspirations. From his time as a congressman in the 1990s, to his eight-year governorship, to his unexpected House comeback that followed, Sanford had long established himself as a figure who cut against the grain — the rare politician who loved to break with his own party. Yet in taking on Trump, his friends and political allies say, he took it

FTA: “Sanford himself had expressed concern that a loss in the primary would discourage what dwindling GOP dissent among against the White House remains.”

Why does the Republican Party feel the need to have outspoken dissenters in its ranks? Do they not understand that we need unity to achieve the agenda that the American people voted for? It seems they just can’t help themselves. It really is disturbing that they cannot understand the concept of backing a winner. The democrats on the other hand stick together regardless. Buy a clue all you maverick minded Republicans! Do the WILL of the people, support this President. Good riddens, Sanford. We’re much better off without you and your sanctimony.

To praphrase this entire article in 2 sentences: Sanford never understood his voters. The tweet from POTUS may have been the final nail.

“He made a calculation in the post-Trump election that he was going to stand on principle."

WHAT principle? To be a jerk and work against the wishes of the People because you personally don´t like Trump? Because, like a whiny liberal, you are annoyed Trump won?

After Trump´s post election meeting with Congress, Sanford found it "necessary" to comment "I wasn´t particularly impressed". What snark. Arrogance, obnoxiousness, and obstructionism is NOT a principle.

Sanford richly deserves this loss. I hope it stings for a long time.

Sanford was a dyed in the wool McCain-ite. He loved thinking he was the only brain in the room and had all the answers. Hubris was his middle name. But, he failed to understand that old formulas does not work anymore. Trump changed everything- not only for Democrats and leftists- but also for these "Republican-Lite" pols who love to think their key to the power box lies with GD Democrats. The people are- for now at least - waking up to those kinds of filthy political charlatans.

If McConnell and Ryan were capable of providing some savvy leadership we would not have all of this independent action by whiners, never-Trumpers and peacocks. Hopefully the next election will fix that too. These people forget that what they want does not matter, it´s what the people who elected them want.

Isn´t Sanford the guy that left his family, and abandoned his job of governor to go chasing after some Brazilian journalist like an infatuated high schooler? How can he criticize anyone without coming across like a total complete hypocrite? Considering the election results, it is safe to say he wasn´t successful.

Seriously, all too often, watching a critic is the equivalent of watching a dog that suddenly stops and relieves itself. Not pretty, and something you wish you hadn´t seen. More and more, that is what Trump critics are devolving into. Wish they would just stop.

Sanford was a man who had it all. He was frequently named as a Republican candidate for President. And then he threw it all away for a sleazy affair. He got a temporary reprieve when he was elected to Congress and then, decided to take on Trump! Now he has lost the governorship, his wife, his girlfriend and his Congressional seat. I think God is trying to tell him something.

Let Sanford be a lesson to all Republicans. We demand the MAGA program be implemented. I was glad to see so many retirements, starting with Ryan, Gowdy, Sasse and Corker. A surprise is that the Against Trump National Review is still published.

Now we turn to carpetbagger Mitt Romney. Please Utah, vote for Dr. Mike Kennedy who is also a Mormon and supports President Donald Trump the Great. I donated to his campaign.

To go against your party because they are making a mistake or doing something evil is honorable. Look at Joe Lieberman. He was the perfect example of that.

But Sanford, McPain, Flake, and several others just go against their party so that they can be branded as "rebels". They go against the president and the Republican Party even when they are doing good things (like trying to do away with the huge evil mistake of Ovomitcare).

Thank God most of them will be gone shortly. Stanford got defeated. Flake knew he would be defeated and just "retired". McPain is on death´s doorstep due to his cancer. We can only pray that good, conservative Republicans will take their places and President Trump can continue his agenda to Make America Great Again!!!!!!!

There´s a road down here in SC that leads to some property Sanford owns. It was a long, narrow dirt road, Hardly anyone lived on it, but it ended up at one of Sanfords´ properties on the waterfront. Then one day I´m driving by and .. VIOLA! ... the county had paved the road beginning to end. Needless to say, anybody down here can name 10 dozen well traveled roads that should´ve been paved before THAT one. He lost me right then and there.

Impeach Rod Rosenstein

The long-awaited showdown between the Justice Department and Congress is finally here. It started late Friday afternoon. While the rest of the country was parsing the just-released report on the FBI from the Justice Department’s inspector general, senior congressional leaders and selected committee chairmen quietly met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a secure location in the basement of the Capitol. At issue was Justice and FBI’s continuing defiance of congressional subpoenas. At the top of this list is the demand from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for documents about why and whether the

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

For once, the Southern Poverty Law Center has to cough up for an outrageous smear. The SPLC rakes in donations by claiming to fight hate, but its lists of hate groups routinely include not just truly vile outfits but also ones that simply don’t toe a politically correct line. It went too far in listing Maajid Nawaz and Quilliam, a think tank he founded, in its 2016 “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists,” which proclaimed in part: “Extremists routinely espouse a wide range of utter falsehoods, all designed to make Muslims appear as bloodthirsty terrorists or people intent on undermining American constitutional freedoms.” Actually,

The government is obsessed with your face. Do not be flattered. This is more of a creepy stalker fixation. From the federal Department of Homeland Security down to local police departments, governmental use of biometric facial recognition software has gained a startling amount of traction in recent years. And these agencies are getting help from big business, to boot. For example, DHS is reportedly developing a massive new biometric and biographic database with extensive data on citizens and foreigners alike. The Homeland Advanced Recognition Technology (HART) database will reportedly include at least seven biometric identifiers, including face and voice data, tattoos, DNA,

While the Trump administration is being slammed by critics for its "zero-tolerance" policy of separating children from adults who illegally enter the country, the outcry over the federal government´s handling of the sensitive issue of how to handle minors is hardly new. The Obama administration actually expanded the system of detaining families – typically mothers and their minor children – after a huge surge of Central Americans along the U.S.-Mexican border in 2014. The policy resulted in many minors being detained in various locations, in much-criticized conditions, either with their families or by themselves, if they had crossed the border alone. Videos

In the pre-dawn hours yesterday, the nation experienced yet another mass shooting. One dead, 22 injured, including a 13-year-old boy. It took place at the crowded Art All Night Trenton festival in New Jersey. To their limited credit, a couple of cable news outlets mentioned the shooting in their coverage yesterday and this morning. The New York Times wrote a rather lengthy article about it, though it showed up on page A-17. It received similarly “not prominent” coverage in other major papers.

We have two choices when it comes to border security and interior enforcement. We can continue telegraphing the message that when you come here with children you are home free. This will continue fueling the drug crisis, growing MS-13, enriching the drug cartels, inducing sex trafficking and terrible crimes at the border, encouraging illegals to kidnap children to gain admission, and causing death and mayhem on both sides of the border. Or we could finally deter this behavior by announcing an end to any immigration requests not processed in a controlled environment through our embassy. If you are concerned about

Political spinning about the Department of Justice’s Inspector General’s report that came out last Thursday is all about shiny bits and pieces of the report. It misses the events outside the report’s four corners that magnify its importance tenfold. Let’s pull back on the stick, gain some altitude, and examine some of the more important facts. When we do, we have to conclude that the Augean Stables on Pennsylvania Avenue — the Justice Department building and, across the street, the J. Edgar Hoover FBI building — have to be cleaned out.

When David and Shirley Pirlott filed a federal labor complaint against Teamsters Local 75 on Nov. 8, 1987, the day before the Berlin Wall fell, they did not imagine they would have to wait 30 years to resolve the dispute. The Pirlotts were finally vindicated in March 2018 when the Wisconsin-based Teamsters local mailed them separate checks of about $3,000 for failing to allow them to opt out of union dues. The case spanned five presidencies, dozens of National Labor Relations Board members, and numerous appearances before the D.C. Court of Appeals. In the time it took for the NLRB to

But a bogey at No. 6 pulled Koepka back toward the pack and he had to scramble to only drop one shot at the par-3 11th after he airmailed the green with a pitching wedge

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

(Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution.

He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Monday at a border patrol facility in McAllen, TX on “CBS This Morning,” co-host Gayle King said the Statue of Liberty is “weeping right now” over the separating of immigrant children from their families. King said “We arrived yesterday afternoon. We went straight to the facility, the location where kids and their parents were reunited. All I can say after talking to the people, watching the people, listening to the people, that the Statue of Liberty I think is weeping right now. It’s unbelievable the stories we’ve heard.” She added, “We’re standing in front of a converted warehouse. This is

Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Sen. Charles E. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey
